GASCOYNE, GASKIN, or GASKELL, EDWARD, Salem, shipwright, had gr. of ld. 1637, by w. Sarah had Samuel, bapt. 7 Aug,. 1639; Daniel, 10 Oct. 1640; Sarah, 14 May 1643; Hannah, 1 Mar. 1646; and Edward, 30 Apr. 1648. Sarah, m. 24 May 1661, Peter Joy. SAMUEL, Salem, s. prob. of the preced. m. 30 Dec. 1662, Provided, d. of Lawrence Southwick, had Samuel, b. 23 Jan. 1664; Edward, 22 Oct. 1667; Hannah, 2 Jan. 1670; and Provided, 22 Apr. 1672; was punish. 1658, for his curiosity or depravity in attend. a Quaker meet. He had s. John, wh. a. 9 Oct. 1686, perhaps few days old; and his w. Elizabeth d. 18 of the same. The Salem rec. also certif. that by w. Elizabeth he had Elizabeth b. 13 May 1688; where we can see that an error of date is giv. unless he had sec. w. of the same name as the first. But he could certain. not be f. of that temporary dweller in Cambridge or Charlestown nam. SAMUEL, wh. was after of New Haven, m. very likely as sec. w. 20 July 1687, Elizabeth Sherman, d. of John, but whether the min. or the capt. is by Bond left uncert. Yet we may easily presume that between the two Samuels there is confus. tho. we may be very sure that no Quaker would then have been permit. to m. a d. of either Capt. or Rev. John S. It was clear. the d. of Rev. John that m. at mature age after her f.'s d. Samuel G. a thriving merch. of New Haven, had prob. Samuel and Mary perhaps by former w. and he had bapt. at Watertown, John, 30 Nov. 1690; and d. 1706. His inv. was of 20 Jan. foll. and Sherman's d. Elizabeth was admin. SAMUEL, Stratford, s. of the preced. d. soon after his f. leav. w. Abigail half his est. beside provis. in case she were pregnant, and residue to sis. Mary, by his will of 31 Jan. 1707.

GATCHELL, or GETCHELL, sometimes GITCHELL, JEREMIAH, Marblehead 1668-1674. JOHN, Salem 1637, aged a. 26, was of Marblehead 1648. He may have been the f. of that John, a soldier in Beers's comp. wh. fell 4 Sept. 1675, with his leader, at Squakeag fight. JONATHAN, Marblehead 1674, rem. to Portsmouth, R. L and there m. 5 Mar. 1683, [[vol. 2, p. 235]] Mary, wid. of Gershom Wodell, had Priscilla, b. 10 Nov. foll. and Isbell, 22 Oct. 1685. SAMUEL, Salem 1638, rem. to Hampton 1644, thence to Salisbury 1648, by w. Dorcas, wh. d. 12 June 1685, had Priscilla, b. 26 Feb. 1649; and Samuel, 8 Feb. 1657. His d. Susanna m. 10 Mar. 1662, Joseph Norton. SAMUEL, Salisbury, s. of the preced. m. 27 Nov. 1679, Elizabeth Jones of Amesbury, had Hannah, b. 30 Jan. 1681; Moses, 15 May 1682; Eleanor, 3 Oct. 1683, d. soon; Eleanor, again, 2 Nov. 1684; Dorcas, 8 May 1685, as rec. says; and Mary, 12 Apr. 1687. Perhaps the name in our days is commonly Getchell.

Rebecca had Daniel, b. 5 Feb. 1707; David, 27 June 1709; Rebecca, 27 June 1711; Abigail, 18 Mar. 1714; Joseph, 7 Sept. 1716; Mary, 29 Mar. 1719; Ruth, 10 Aug. 1721; Ephraim, 18 Aug. 1724; and Judah, 2 Aug. 1727; and d. 24 Nov. 1761. GEORGE, Haddam, an orig. propr. 1662, was of Hartford the yr. preced. by w.

Elizabeth had Joseph, b. 28 Dec. 1695; Elizabeth 23 May 1697; John, 20 Sept. 1698; Sarah, 20 Aug. 1700; Jonathan, 17 Dec. 1703; Susanna, 21 Sept. 1705; Jacob, 10 July 1708; Samuel, 29 Mar. 1710; and Patience, perhaps posthum. at least when bapt. 23 Mar. 1712, she is call. "a ch. of Joseph Gates's relict," but the careless town rec. marks her b. 31 Mar. of that yr. His wid. d. 17 Nov. 1759 in her 89th yr.

Esther had Sarah, b. 15 July 1712; Hannah, 4 Feb. 1714; Samuel, 14 Aug. 1715; Esther, 26 Feb. bapt. 2 Mar. 1718; Mary, b. 29 July 1719; James, 29 Aug. 1721; Stephen, 30 June 1723; and Jonah, bapt. 25 Apr. 1725.

He [[vol. 2, p. 236]] calls hims. of C. in his will, made 9 June, pro. 7 Oct. of that yr. He had Stephen, Simon, and Thomas, b. I think, on this side of the ocean; and those he brot. prob. were Elizabeth wh. m. Nov. or 22 Dec. 1649, John Lazell; and Mary, wh. m. 5 Apr. 1658, John Maynard. His wid. Ann m. 1663, Richard Woodward of Watertown, outliv. him, and d. 5 Feb. 1683, at Stow, where G. had sometime resid. STEPHEN, Boston, s. of the preced. by w.

Daniel Brainerd, had Thomas, b. 3 Oct. 1693; Daniel, 26 May 1695; Jeremiah, 17 Mar. 1697; Hannah, 1 June 1699, d. at 14 yrs.; Esther, b. 24 Feb. 1701, d. at 19 yrs.; Mary, 29 Aug. 1703; George, 17 Nov. 1705; and Joshua, 26 Apr. 1708; was town clk. capt. deac. rep. 1725. and d. 20 Apr. 1734. His wid. d. 7 Sept. 1750.

GATLINE, or GATTLIFFE, JONATHAN, Boston, s. of Thomas, a mariner, m. June 1663, Mary, eldest d. of Amos Richardson. THOMAS, Dorchester, a miller, was of Braintree 1650, d. 17 May 1663, had ch. only s. Jonathan; Prudent; and Mary b. 13 Feb. 1656; left good est. wid. Prudent, not mo. of Jonathan.

GATSELL, WALTER, came in the Abigail 1635, aged 34, but we kn.

GATTERY, JOHN. See Gaffingsley.GAULT, WILLIAM, of Yarmouth, Co. Norfolk, cordwainer, aged 29 yrs. a single man, emb. 11 May 1637 in the Mary Ann, but we kn. not his resid. here; nor can the name be found, exc. that John Easton, wh. bec. gov. of R. I. had m. 4 Feb. 1661, Mehitable G. wh. may have been his d. But it may well seem, that he liv. at Salem, for there Mary, wid. of William Goult or Gott, had contr. for m. with Richard Bishop, as his sec. w. in July 1660, as in Essex Inst. II. 182, is well shown.

GAUNT, PETER, Lynn, rem. to Sandwich 1637, there was liv. 1643. THOMAS, Rehoboth, perhaps s. of the preced. may be the same as in ano. part of the Col. Rec. is giv. Grant, of the bur. of whose ch. Sept. 1676, ment. is made on Col. Rec. had John, b. 21 Jan. 1678.

GAY, EBENEZER, Dedham, s. of John the first, by w. Lydia had Eleazur, b. 19 Aug. 1676; and b. in Wrentham, Lydia, 20 May 1685; and John, 25 Aug. 1687. JOHN, Watertown, freem. 6 May 1635; rem. to [[vol. 2, p. 237]] Dedham, by w. Joanna (in fam. tradit. said to have been wid. Baldwicke, and to have had s. John by former h. perhaps in Eng.) had Samuel, b. 10 Mar. 1639; Hezekiah, 8 July 1640; perhaps Elizabeth wh. m. 1660, Richard Martin; certain. Nathaniel, 11 Jan. 1643, or as Geneal. Reg. VI. 373, perhaps wrong. gives the date 11 Nov. 1642; Joanna, 23 Mar. 1645; Eleazer, 25 Mar. 1647; Abiel, and Judith, tw. 23 Apr. 1649; John, 6 May 1651; Jonathan, 1 Aug. 1653; and Hannah, 16 Oct. 1656, wh. d. young. He d. 4 Mar. 1688; and his wid. d. 14 Aug. 1691. Hezekiah d. unm. 20 Nov. 1669, hav. in his nuncup. will 25 Oct. preced. rememb. f. mo. brs. and sis. Nathaniel, John, Jonathan, Samuel, Abigail, and Judith, and giv. especial. to "sis. Whiting that new book concerning Thomas Savage," for wh. I fear, all search in bibliograph. works will be vain. 

In the lists of freem. 1644 and 5 appears the name of John Gay, but it may well be feared, that one, if not both, is or are repetition only. Ano. fam. of Gay there was, indeed, in Dedham, or in that part wh. bec. Wrentham, who widely spread, but of wh. the progenit. is not kn. to me. JOHN, Watertown, by w. Hannah, had Hannah, b. 25 Dec. 1668; and Thomas, Mar. 1674; d. in few yrs after, for Bond shows that admin. to wid. Hannah pass. 18 Dec. 1678.

VI. 373, tells (tho. it is not kn. whose d. she was), had Benjamin; Nathaniel; both d. young; Mary; Lydia; Nathaniel, again; Lusher, b. 26 Sept. 1685, wh. was f. of the Rev. Ebenezer of Suffield, H. C. 1737, D.D.; Joanna; Benjamin, again; Abigail; and Ebenezer, 26 Aug. 1696, H. C. 1714; was freem. 1677, and d. 20 Feb. 1713; but his w. liv. to 6 Aug. 1744. SAMUEL, Dedham, eldest br. of the preced. m. 23 Nov. 1661, Mary, prob. d. of Edward Bridge of Roxbury, had Samuel, Edward, John, Hezekiah, and Timothy; and d. 15 Apr. 1718, and his w. d. 3 days after. 

SAMUEL, Roxbury, by w. Abigail had Samuel, b. 24 Feb. 1688; and Abigail, 15 Oct. 1689. The gr. ornament of this fam. was Rev. Ebenezer, youngest s. of; Nathaniel, third min. of Hingham, ord. 11 June 1718, wh. d. 18 Mar. 1787, the honor. patriarch of our N. E. pulpit in that age. Eleven of this name had, in 1826, been gr. at Harv. of wh. five were clerg. and three at the other N. E. coll.

Dorcas, d. of Nathaniel Starbuck, had Damaris, b. 24 Oct. 1673; Dorcas, 29 Aug. 1675; and William, 3 June 1677. His w. d. a. 1696; and he d. 23 Sept. 1710, hav. had ano. w. but no ch. [[vol. 2, p. 238]] by her. Perhaps he was br. of Samuel; and his d. Damaris m. 17 Aug. 1692, Nathaniel Coffin, the progenit. of Adm. Sir Isaac; and Dorcas m. 6 Dec. 1694, her cous. Jethro Starbuck.

GAYLORD, GAYLOR, GAYLER, GALLARD, or GALLERD, ELIEZUR, Windsor, youngest s. of Walter, m. 18 Aug. 1686, Martha Thompson, had Martha, b. 21 May 1687; Elizabeth 26 Nov. 1690; Eliezur, 26 Feb. 1695; Samuel, 9 Mar. 1697; and Hannah, 4 Sept. 1700. JOHN, Dorchester 1632, one of two chos. by the town to meet the Court of Assist. bef. any system of rep. had been formed. Whether he d. soon, or went home, may long be unkn. but his name does not occur again.
